Preferential Treatment in Laptop Theft?

Colorado judicial authorities knew that former district court judge and then-Denver City Attorney was suspected of stealing a $1,600 state computer when they told police they didn’t want him prosecuted "at this time."

That fact and others were contained in a news release by the State Court Administrator’s office Thursday.

However, the judicial authorities said Larry Manzanares did not receive "any preferential treatment" by administrator’s office, which they said was conducting its own investigation, independent of Denver police

Do you wish to reach your travel destination without the hassle of worrying too much about any possible budget shortages?

Traveling is one of the best perks in life. Nothing beats a vacation which involves international travel. But of course, we all know how international flights can be too expensive and painful on the pocket. Even if they say that nowadays everything comes with a price, we still find it difficult to shell out something just so we could travel across countries.

Still, there is no need for you to worry. There are cheap international airline tickets which you can avail of and they do fit any type of budget real well. So even if you are on a tight budget, cheap international airline tickets can still make your much awaited vacation come to pass. Here are some tips you can use to help you find these great deals.

The first important thing you should be well aware of is the fact that prices of airline tickets change constantly from time to time. There really are no fixed price on tickets, so the best way to go about it is to keep a tab on price changes. Once it hits the numbers wherein it fits your budget already, then go ahead and make that immediate purchase.

In addition, be aware of tourist peak seasons. Some travel destinations become so popular on an annual basis. For instance, Paris can become a tourist love spot during the month of February. So if you plan to go there during February, don't expect you'll get cheap airline tickets during that month.

Usually, the best period to buy cheap international airline tickets is four months to a couple of weeks before your actual flight. If you cannot afford it yet, you can still choose to make reservations first then pay the amount in full as soon as you have the money.

[b] Select Comfort Beds - Pros and Cons of Sleep Number Mattresses [/b]

Because the Sleep Number Select Comfort Bed is so heavily advertised, it's a well known product and one of the best selling mattresses in the United States. Select Comfort has a 24-hour website, full-service customer sales telephone line and over 478 retail locations, all selling their products. But, does it work?

For a high-level overview of the pros and cons associated with a Select Comfort bed, keep reading.

Pros and Selling Points of the Sleep Number System

The main selling feature for the Select Comfort mattress line is that it allows each individual sleeper to control the firmness level on their own side of the bed. So, instead of compromising on your bed's softness, you can each have a bed that works for your body.

Users operate a remote that controls an air pump on the bed, which then sucks air into or out of the mattress' air chamber.

Other features include a 30-night trial period, 20-year limited warranty (but, it doesn't include many parts), digital controls and high-quality fabric materials.

Cons of the Sleep Number System

The biggest drawback to the Select Comfort Bed is the "trench" effect created when both sides are inflated to a moderate to full firmness setting. Once the dual air chambers are inflated, a dip is created in the middle of the bed. Many sleepers find themselves rolling into this dip or fighting against it. So, if your spouse and you both prefer a firmer bed, you may be better off simply searching for a quality, traditional mattress that you both like.

The second major con against the Select Comfort bed is the mold problem that has recently developed into a large-scale, class-action lawsuit. Basically, because the Select Comfort Sleep Number system sucks air inside the mattress, it also sucks in atmospheric moisture, allergens and mold spores. These spores then take root inside the mattress, spreading and becoming a major health hazard.

Cost of the Sleep Number Mattress

There are six models of Sleep Number mattresses that range from the Sleep Number 3000 basic model to the deluxe, luxury Sleep Number 9000.

Prices for the Select Comfort Bed will range from approximately $450 for a basic, twin-sized Sleep Number 3000 all the way to $4700 for a Sleep Number 9000 King Size with all the included accessories.

Where to Buy

To buy a Select Comfort bed, visit their website for immediate purchasing and financing, or you can go to one of their over 470 retail stores across North America. Should you choose one of their mattresses for the 30-night test, note that payment of all return delivery charges will be yours if you decide not to keep it.
